Bobby Vans Steakhouse for WCBS TV NY | New Jersey & New York Freelance Commercial Photographer July 22, 2009

On Monday, July 6th, I was given an awesome photography opportunity unlike any other I’ve done so far!

I was asked to photograph interiors and various food set-ups of Bobby Vans Steakhouse at 25 Broad Street in New York City for WCBS-TV NY.  The photos were taken to be featured in an upcoming television commercial on WCBS-TV NY!

I haven’t edited the food set-ups yet, but once I do I will share them here in a separate blog post. If the commercial is successfully created and airs I will definitely share it on my blog with you all as well.

This opportunity was made possible by my friend Lee who works for WCBS-TV.   Thank you so much Lee!

I also want to thank Mike Palmer for all of his advice on the shoot!

*Bobby Van’s Steakhouse and Grill located across from the New York Stock Exchange uses the original 1898 structure to create lush and evocative dining rooms filled with dark wood, cream-colored walls and beautiful chandeliers.

Pass through the glass entrance of the steakhouse into the grand dining room with 20′ ceilings to face a gorgeous 20-foot bar and a floor-to-ceiling wall of wine and liquor.

Dine under the soft lighting of the grand chandeliers and enjoy succulent 28-day dry-aged prime steaks and the freshest seafood.

The Vault Grill on the lower level was once J.P. Morgan & Co.’s original bank vault, which was installed by Remington & Sherman Co. in 1902

The Vault Bar’s elongated room is lined with vault doors, two of which showcase Bobby Van’s extensive Wine Vault. The 22-foot wood paneled bar boasts a large selection of spirits which you can also enjoy at one of the rich tapestry-covered banquettes.

In the center of the room is the impressive six-foot circular main vault door which opens into The Vault. The walls are lined with the original antique deposit boxes that lend a rich bronze hue to the room. The dark wood accents, mirrored pillars and classic lighting transport you to another time when JP Morgan and John D Rockefeller ruled Manhattan.
